David Knudsen,

CEO/Creative Director at Altervision 3D

 

"Shana did a superb job animating a 30-second video rendering, depicting the vision I had for the next evolution of The Altervision 3D Blacklight Experience. Every little detail that I wanted to articulate, she took on and accurately portrayed.

She worked quickly and efficiently, and I couldn't have been happier with the result."

Robert Schajer,
VFX Executive Producer at BUF Compagnie

 

"I had the pleasure of knowing Shana at Tigar Hare and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Not only was she a vital and reliable artist in her own right, she has the talent of balancing her own shot progress with being able to keep the rest of her team on track. I am not surprised that she has prospered everywhere she has gone since then and, given the opportunity, I would gladly work with her again."

Jai Natarajan,
Senior Advisor, Business Strategy at Xentrix Studios

 

"Shana was first a client supervisor (for Tigar Hare) and then an early CG supervisor at Prana. She is steeped in a culture of high quality art production and delivery. We did some game cinematic work together and I valued her artistic eye along with CG knowledge and never-say-die approach under immense pressure. Shana knows how to work with ambitious projects, while continuously trying to expand the pipeline and toolset to incorporate latest techniques. Her subsequent years in India (when Prana was breaking new ground for quality in the DVD and independent feature space) have given her great grounding in working alongside and running diverse teams. All through, she has not lost her hands-on touch for CG and for exploring new techniques, making her both an excellent individual artist and a Swiss Army Knife for a flexible environment. I unhesitatingly recommend her for any studio or project."

Nachiket Pujari,
Hair/Cloth Technical Director Prana Studios

 

"Shana is one of the most talented CG Supervisors I have ever had the privilege of working with. She is exceptionally talented, motivated and hard working. Shana brought an extensive knowledge of the 3D side of things and had a great eye for shots when supervising. She embodies the two most important qualities for supervising creative digital artists:
* She has a keen and discerning artistic eye, and knows how to translate her vision into clear direction for her crew.
* She has the leadership qualities that inspire a crew to go above and beyond the call, and to give their best.

I learned a lot from Shana and I sincerely hope to work with her again in the future"

Hrishikesh Andurlekar,
CG Supervisor at Happy Finish

 

"Shana has unlimited energy. She is tenacious and tackles problems head on. She laid down the foundations of the CG and compositing workflow which used at Prana and it really stood the test of time and multiple projects. She was always very approachable and ready to solve practical issues faced. Her in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of the software and the project workflow was something we relied upon heavily while taking up challenging projects. I learned quite a lot about best practices by studying her Maya and Fusion files. I wish her all the best and would not hesitate to work with her once again."
